Want to know where the job opportunities are likely to be in the next several years? The U.S. Department of Labor and the National Center for O*NET Development published a list of “Bright Outlook Occupations*,” so you can see what’s hot in the labor market. South Hills’ priorities include preparing students for those “in demand” employment and career opportunities AND helping employers find trained and qualified candidates (i.e. OUR GRADS!).
Bright Outlook Occupations are jobs that:
Medical Assistants are trained professionals that handle both administrative tasks and patient care tasks under the direction of a physician. They perform duties such as gathering and recording patient and insurance information, preparing exam rooms, and providing direct patient care such as drawing blood, administering medications, and measuring vital signs. MAs work in doctors’ offices, hospitals, outpatient care centers, or ambulatory care facilities. Some also work in dentistry, optometry, pediatric, or other specialty offices. If you are looking for a medical career path that allows for some patient contact and has more regular office hours, this might be the perfect career for you!
